    Hello and a big welcome to WBF. I love your Sasha Series 2 with the soft dome tweeter. Are your speakers Obsidian Black or Black Almondine or something different.

    Hello sir from North Carolina and please allow me to offer you a very warm welcome to the What's Best Forum! It looks like you have assembled a system that many here would consider an extremely nice sounding system. I too am a big fan of the soft dome tweeter for what it brings to the end result as to what hits your ears.

    I do have a question right off the bat sir, if you don't mind me asking. Your speakers do not have (unless it's a visual perspective error on my part) much toe in. How far back is the listening position? From the picture I see, it looks as if the toe in is anywhere between 2-4 degrees.

    Again, welcome to the WBF! Enjoy the forum.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I post my own opinions except when posting as a moderator in green.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the welcome. At the time of taking the photos they were 15.7" / 40cm from the rear wall, not sure on the toe-in (I have since reduced them 11.8" / 30cm from rear wall which provided a tighter bass response, space them further apart with a 1" toe in). The listening position is approx 106" / 2.7m back.

    Over many listening sessions I experimented with speaker placements and found this gave the best results. The toe in was definitely important to get right, it now has a centre stage and the speakers disappear.
